1. Visit the Ideal City of the Renaissance: Pienza
Its history is closely linked to Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who in 1458 became Pope Pius II. The pontiff entrusted the Florentine architect Bernardo Rossellino with the important task to bring the town back to life. The result was a city project, which was wonderful for its regular design and rational plan, very different from the disorderly atmosphere that usually prevailed in the medieval villages.
